The attached case shows a very easily avoided register spill.  (The source is a
dense matrix multiply routine.) In LBB1_2, %ymm10 is spilled and then reloaded
10 or so instructions later.  Across these instructions, %ymm2-5 (at least) are
all dead, so the spill shouldn't be necessary at all.  (Unless I'm missing

Though this is just a single spill, it's a pretty simple repro case, with
surprising behavior.  I've seen a number of other cases with quite a bit of
unnecessary spilling with SSE/AVX registers, but the attached is a reasonably
straightforward, so I hope it's useful.
